Oh, Real Housewives of Atlanta how I missed your crazy ways! It’s a new season… with the same intros? Bravo? What’s up with that!? On last night’s season premiere episode Kim prepared for her new life with Kroy and KJ, NeNe and Sheree got crazy, Phaedra found her new calling, Cynthia debuted The Bailey Agency and Kandi well… she was vibrating with excitement over a new business venture.
Things start out with a super prego Kim — and I think her wig is getting bigger as her bump grows — along with Sweetie and Kroy cleaning out her storage unit. Apparently, Kim and Kroy are moving into her dream home and she is planning to fill it with all the furniture Big Poppa paid for! While Kim sits in the car and drinks a slurpy, Kroy does all the heavy lifting. Kim seems happy yet warns Kroy he better not hurt his money maker hauling Big Poppa’s furniture around – she needs his booty to bring home those checks! She still can’t get over his booty either! Is Kroy a stripper or her boyfriend? Kim reflects on the differences between Big Poppa and Kroy: Big Poppa wouldn’t move a tissue, Kroy is a real man who lifts other man’s furniture, Big Poppa was married and Kroy isn’t, oh and Kroy’s ring is going to mean a thing! I missed Kim’s trashy!

The Georgia peaches are back on Bravo! Tonight features a whole new season of drama, wig-tugging and pickle photography with the women of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. There is a lot going on this time around.
In a an interview with Star, Nene dishes that her breakout fame (because apparently that’s what Celebrity Apprentice causes) has her castmates bubbling over with jealousy. She reveals, “They don’t have anything positive to say, of course. Coming back was a funny feeling. I guess every other girl kind of feels like, ‘Why her? Why not me?’ ”
When discussing her knock-down-drag-out with Sheree, which apparently goes from friendly chat to screaming match in 0.25 seconds, NeNe explains, “It was all just petty. I walked into that situation not wanting it to blow up, but it did.”
NeNe also dishes on the ladies trip to Morocco South Africa. “It’s a long-ass flight, but it’s beautiful!” She continues, “The moment I landed, I was like, why the hell am I here with y’all? It would be great if I came here with people I really liked.” Mee and Yow!
Poor NeNe admits that doing the show is draining. She states, “It’s a lot. We shoot it, then it airs and we have to see it, and after that we have to go to the reunion and relive it again. After every one I’m like, ‘Why did I do this again?’” NeNe, I bet some of the viewers are asking the same question.
Continuing her press tour, NeNespoke with Sister2Sister to further address her feud this season with Sheree. It seems Sheree believes her former friend tried to cheat her out of a paid appearance. Of course, NeNe feels that Sheree is simply creating drama to insure she stays relevant on the show.
NeNe asserts, “Me and Sheree have an argument, but Lord knows she needs to have an argument with somebody because she’s so damn boring.” Simply put, NeNe explains, “She confronted me and I don’t hold back. Sheree came to me saying that I was trying to take money out of her pocket, which I thought was a joke.” She continues, “I’m looking at her like, ‘Mm hmm. B!tch please! I can put money in your pocket.’”
The whole notion is preposterous to the famous Ms. Leakes who doesn’t need to steal Sheree’s thunder or her appearance opportunities. She says, “To just keep it really real with you, my appearance fee is way higher than hers anyway. Child, please!” Of course her fee is much higher, she’s much more famous! (According to her…)
Regardless of the she said-she said, this season promises the same craziness we’ve grown to love (or loathe) from the ladies of Atlanta. The premiere airs tonight (9pm ET) on Bravo, and you can watch a preview clip below. You won’t want to be tardy for this party!
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON NENE’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE HER CASTMATES ARE JEALOUS OF HER? THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S PREVIEW & SEASON PREMIERE?
Real Housewives of Atlanta’s sassy fashionista, Sheree Whitfield is talking about what’s in store for the new season (hint: plenty of drama!) and giving us some dirt on her relationship with the notorious NeNe Leakes (hint: it no longer exists outside of reality TV!).
In a new interview with Sister 2 Sister, Sheree reveals that she definitely does not exaggerate who she is for the cameras! “It’s really my life,” she insists. “Maybe some of the other people are putting on. I know someone in particular who’s put on since season 1, but it’s my real life. I’m not pretending to be something I’m not. I’m not the amp-up girl. It’s real.” (Ahem… NeNe?)
“I spent a lot of time with my family. We have a great time,” she says of the good things in season four. “There’s no drama there … love and fun times.” Sheree’s storyline will also focus on resolving her never-ending child support dispute with ex-husband Bob Whitfield with a little help from her friend, Phaedra Parks! “He’s not paid in a long time,” Sheree explains. “The kids and I are fine. So, I really didn’t stress it, but every now and then, I’d make comments to him, and it was just something that probably should have been done a long time ago, but we’re just starting to take action now.”
While drama in her personal life is at a minimum, rest assured that’s not the case with certain co-stars! “You’ll definitely see another side of me,” she warns. ”I’m always in the midst of something. I try to stay away from it, and I’m constantly being pulled in.”
Claiming she doesn’t like “drama” but sometimes it’s unavoidable, Sheree promises: “I’m not going to start anything. it’s only so much a person can take. I try to avoid you as long as I can, but I can finish it in the end. I try to avoid it, but you can only do so much, especially when you have ignorant people around you.” Sheree – never cause drama? Someone needs to check you, Boo!
Never one to mince words, Sheree is certainly not sparing feelings when it comes to her former friend, now co-star and “acquaintance” NeNe! Appearing on The Wendy Williams Show with fellow Housewives Phaedra and Kandi Burruss the ladies gave the inside scoop on what’s up with the ever-so demure Ms. Leakes!
“We were friends a long time ago,” Sheree reveals. “NeNe has really changed. The fame has totally changed her. It’s gone to her head. She just feels like she’s bigger than everybody.” Apparently, that attitude is what led to a huge blowout between the co-stars!
Sheree believes her close friendship with Kim Zolciak furthered the rift in her relationship with NeNe, ultimately leading to the irreparable altercation! “It was an appearance that I had to do; I brought NeNe in on it — actually Kim, as well — and she tried to pull from me and Kim, what we were getting,” Sheree divulged.
“I don’t care about all the other things that she does, or things that she says ‘cause it really doesn’t affect me ‘cause we’re really not friends like that. We’re acquaintances,” she insists, but “when you try to pull money or take money from me, that’s just really low.”
Kandi confirms that there is a serious divide between the cast mates! “All of us don’t necessarily talk to everybody like that,” she reveals. “They started calling everybody the ‘smalls’ and the ‘talls’ by the end of the season. The taller group of us hung out and the smaller group of us would hang out.” Wow – so I’m expecting a very ummm… outrageous season and an even crazier reunion!
Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 4 premiers Sunday, November 6th at 10/9c on Bravo!
And tonight, Bravo is planning to air a special 15-minute first look at the new season starting at 9/8c.

ARE YOU READY FOR WHAT SOUNDS LIKE AN EPIC SEASON OF RHOA? DO YOU BELIEVE SHEREE’S CLAIMS THAT SHE DOESN’T START DRAMA? DO YOU THINK NENE HAS CHANGED?
On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills things got wild Moroccan style at Pandora’s insane, incredible, fantastic engagement party. Can Mohammed be my godfather? Kim debuted her new man who is also a Ken! And Taylor and Russell got a little threatastic with the tabloids. Oh, and Taylor started planning another Birthday Party for Kennedy!
Lisa is driving through her hood amidst the palm trees, Bentleys, designer logos, and mega-mansions casually calling all her friends to remind them that the party of the year will be happening on Tuesday so they better show up. Sadly, everyone is screening her calls. No interest in the British accent today, co-stars? Finally Kyle answers and is wondering what on earth to wear?! Something fun and something ball gown. Lisa fills Kyle in on her little cooking lesson with Adrienne. They are both surprised Adrienne didn’t rub some hand lotion on the poor chicken!

This is possibly verified by the fact that Marlo was not included in any of the official Bravo promotional pictures or write-ups for the new season. And Phaedra Parks stated in a recent interview: “We’re almost finished filming, it’s still just the six of us, no one left and there is no new Housewife.”
The reason Marlo got downgraded? Apparently not only did she lie about her affiliation with supposed fiancé Charles Grant, she also has a pretty shady and violent criminal past! (oh no – Danielle 2.0!). Also she was supposed to bring the catfights with NeNe Leakes, but instead the two formed a friendship! A Bravo no-no!
Marlo’s criminal past is quite extensive, resulting in seven arrests, including a couple for aggravated assault and another for check fraud from her days living in Florida. Seriously! Sources say Bravo is claiming they did not know about her lengthy violent criminal history and when they were alerted to it through the blogosphere, were forced to reconsider adding her to the cast permanently to avoid being held responsible for any of her untoward (re: possibly illegal) behaviors! Hey, they’ve already got enough of that on their hands!
I find it very hard to believe that Bravo would not thoroughly and exhaustively background check their cast members – and I believe they do conduct those checks and then cast for maximum drama. I mean, you get a background check to work at Target!
In addition the number one reason Marlo was added to the cast was to create controversy with NeNe as a result of her relationship with Charles. Well, allegedly not only were Marlo and Charles never engaged and Charles refused to be implicated in her schemes; Nene KNEW their relationship was a fraud all along!
In fact, Marlo and NeNe allegedly pulled a fast one and buddied up against other ladies on the cast (although the recent trailer for the season shows them getting into plenty of disputes!) and Marlo also formed friendships with Phaedra and Cynthia Bailey in the hopes the network would keep her on anyways.
StraightFromTheA, who cites their source as “highly credible,” is also claiming that Marlo “didn’t have ANY of the qualifications that Bravo requests for inclusion on the show, i.e. married, divorced or in a long-term relationship with a baller/well-to-do mate, career, kids,” so Bravo simply lost interest in what she could bring to the show long-term. Um… chaos? But I guess with NeNe and Phaedra they’ve already got enough of that!
Marlo’s numerous mugshots are featured below.
Do you think there is truth to the rumor that Marlo will not be included in the cast or just an attempt to create buzz for the new season? Thoughts on Marlos’ background and supposed faux-gagement to Charles Grant?

With the Real Housewives of Atlanta almost upon us, the ladies are out in full-force to promote the show and the dramz! A trailer for show promises tons of bickering, bitchiness, and over-the-top crazy – along with parties galore!
Phaedra Parks tells the Rumor Fix of the new season, “We’re almost finished filming, it’s still just the six of us, no one left and there is no new Housewife,” not giving away anything about the introduction of Marlo Hampton.
Everybody knows that Phaedra and NeNe Leakes don’t get along and Phaedra reassures us that the feud continues! As for NeNe’s acrimonious appearance on Celebrity Apprentice, Phaedra reveals she is largely unimpressed by her co-star’s behavior! “All this ‘keeping it real’ nonsense isn’t what the show is about. Star Jones is a good friend of mine, so isLil John, they played it right, it was supposed to be about charity.”
Phaedra also takes a jab at Kandi Burruss in response to some totally true comments she made about Phaedra’s baby-shower last season! “I won’t comment on the word ‘Boughetto’ that Kandi used to describe my baby shower,” Phaedra snips. “It is offensive, but me and Kandi, we love each other now.”
In other RHOA news, Kim Zolciak is moving full speed ahead with her wedding plans to NFL fiance Kroy Biermannbefore he changes his mind just days after announcing her engagement on twitter!
In fact TMZ obtained Kim’s wedding invitation (she’s slated to tie the knot on 11/11/11) and it appears Kim, 33, believes she is a mega A-list celebrity!
The reason? Kim, whose wedding is being filmed by Bravo for her new spin-off, is banning her guests from bringing cameras or even cell phones! “In order to protect our privacy on our special day, no cameras or cell phones will be allowed on property. A photo ID will be required for all guests upon entry,” reads the invitation. PHOTOS of Kim’s invitation is below!
And finally, Cynthia Bailey also promises “a lot of drama,” as she discloses there will be “tensions going on with a lot of the girls,” and in “[her] storyline especially.” And she lets us know that the unrest between her sister and husband, Peter Thomas is still going strong. Hey, she has to bring the chaos if she expects to stick around!
As for the ladies’ trip to Africa, rest assured it will be over the top! “Africa will never, ever, ever be the same,” Cynthia exclaims!
While Cynthia’s storyline will focus on the development of her new business, a modeling school, she guarantees viewers will get to see a “different” side of her from last season’s peace-keeper now that she’s learned the ropes of Reality TV 101: Bring the cray-cray! “I get a lot of payback this time,” she hints. I wonder if that means her friendship with NeNe has some issues?!
In case you haven’t seen all the Bravo ads, Season Four of RHOA premieres November 6th at 10/9c.
Thoughts on Phaedra’s comments about NeNe’s appearance on Celebrity Apprentice? Harsh or true? Is Kim delusional with her wedding invites?
The ladies also take a trip to Africa where their over the top antics take over the safari! Be sure to expect non-stop social events, parties, and excitement as the ladies go head-to-head in what is definitely the most exciting and climactic season yet!
A new housewife, Marlo Hampton will be joining the cast to stir up dramz with The NeNe, but she is not included in the official cast photos. Perhaps she’ll be making a mid-season entrance to make sure the cray-cray level stays at max capacity!
Below are the cast photos, bios and what to expect from the housewives this season. RHOA season 4 premieres Nov. 6 on Bravo at 10/9c. Have I mentioned, I cannot wait?! Cause I can’t!

And in the new trailer released by the network, the ATL ladies are more dramatic than ever! In the season trailer below, we see Kim Zolciakdealing with her pregnancy and the arrival of her first son, Phaedra Parks works on opening up a funeral home while her hubby Apollo and Cynthia Bailey’s hubby Peter get into it. And speaking of Cynthia, her family still hates her husband Peter!
In the clip, Nene is also seen dating while husband Greggis not shown. But as it’s been reported, this appears to be a storyline solely for the show as the two have been photographed during filming — away from Bravo cameras — looking happy and cozy. But we’ll let you be the judge. The housewives also manage to take a break from all the drama to visit South Africa!
The RHOA season 4 trailer is below! The show returns Nov. 6 on Bravo at 10/9c.
